    How to allow users to deselect an option in Radio button field?

    Asked by slave2thebean on February 03, 2016 at 09:29 AM


    I have created a form that allows the user to select a type of soap. 

    The form works beautifully except for one issue- how to clear a selection. From the photo you can see that you can choose foam or liquid soap AND foam or liquid sanitizer. The issue is that the user is allowed choose both types but if they only pick one and then realize that they actually needed the other type, they can't clear the radio button. Any ideas on how to work around this?

    You cannot deselect the radio button field option once you select it. I would suggest using Dropdown field if you wish to allow users to clear their entry in a field.
